Microsoft Boosts Kerberos Consortium

3/31/08Follow @bbuderi

Microsoft has joined the MIT Kerberos Consortium as a founding sponsor, nudging the organization closer to its goal of establishing Kerberos as a universal authentication platform for computer networks, MIT officials announced today. A representative of the software maker will join counterparts from Sun, Google, and Apple on the consortium’s executive board. Although Kerberos was originally developed for MIT’s Project Athena back in the 1980s, the consortium itself was founded last September.
